Paul Harris Fellows

The Paul Harris Fellowship is named for Paul Harris, who founded Rotary with three business associates in Chicago in 1905. The fellowship was established in his honor in 1957 to express appreciation for a contribution of $1,000 to the humanitarian and educational programs of The Rotary Foundation.


The Rotary Foundation helps Rotary members to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace by improving health, providing quality education, improving the environment, and alleviating poverty.  Contributions to The Rotary Foundation are essential to securing and growing Rotary programs throughout the world. Since it was founded more than 100 years ago, the Foundation has spent more than $4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.

Thirty-one current members of the Rotary Club of Fulton are Paul Harris Fellows. Members contribute a minimum of $120 to The Rotary Foundation each year until they become Paul Harris Fellows. Paul Harris Fellows earn additional recognition by earning “plus” recognition for each additional $1,000 in contributions. Members whose lifetime contributions to the Foundation total $10,000 earn the status of “Major Donor” with appropriate recognition. Rotarians who contribute $1,000 or more annually to The Rotary Foundation become members of the Paul Harris Society. 

Additionally, members are encouraged to name the Rotary Foundation in their will, becoming Benefactors for amounts in excess of $1,000, or members of the Bequest society for amounts in excess of $10,000.
